Ingredients to make Eggless Cumin Lentil Cookies

  • Maida/ All purpose flour - 1 cup + 1 tablespoon for dusting
  • Red Lentil / Masoor Dal - 1/2 cup
  • Water - 11/2 cup
  • Unsalted Butter - 1/2 cup, melted
  • Sugar - 1/4 cup
  • Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Baking powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Cumin Seeds - 1 tablespoon
  • Curd - 11/2 tablespoon

How to make Eggless Cumin Lentil Cookies

  1. Wash the lentil/dal and put in the pressure cooker along with 11/2 cup water. Wait for 2 to 3 whistles under medium heat or until the dal is boiled properly.
  2. Allow to release the pressure and mash the dal. Allow it to cool and take a 1/4th cup of boiled and mashed dal to be used in the cumin lentil cookies recipe.
  3. Dry roast cumin seeds for 1 to 2 minutes and keep aside.
  4. Take melted butter in a big bowl and add sugar into it and mix well.
  5. Next, add curd into the bowl and beat well with the other butter and sugar.
  6. Add 1/4th cup of boiled and mashed dal and mix well again.
  7. Now add the dry ingredients including flour, salt, baking soda and cumin seeds into wet mixture and make a smooth dough. If the dough is too dry you can add some boiled lentil/dal.
  8. Allow resting the dough in the refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes with a cling film.
  9. After that preheat the oven at 180 degree C for 5 minutes and line a cookie/baking tray with a butter paper.
  10. Roll the dough by dusting flour and thickness should be the almost 1/4th inch.
  11. Cut them into desired shapes using a cookie cutter and place them on lined cookie tray.
  12. Bake the cookies at 180 degree C for 12 to 15 minutes.
  13. Allow them to cool and store them in an airtight container.
My Tip: We require only 1/4 cup of mashed and boiled lentil/dal, it is difficult to pressure cook small quantity, hence we boiled dal in a larger quantity.The remaining boiled dal can be used to prepare regular dal recipes.
